When you volunteer, you give part of yourself – your time, talent, energy and skills. You give back to your family and friends, to your neighbors, and to your community.  When you volunteer at one of Via’s special events or in the Thrift Stores, you’re supporting Via’s mission to help people live up to their full potential.

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

Via’s Special Events

Via hosts two events the St. Luke’s Via Marathon and Via All-Star Basketball Classic. Volunteers are needed for all aspects of event management prior to and the day of the event.

Volunteers are an essential part of fulfilling Via’s mission. If you would like to volunteer your time to Via in other ways, please contact us.  We will work with you to create a unique and rewarding volunteer opportunity. Volunteers must be age 16 or older. Community Service hours are available for students.

How to get involved



To comply with Governor Wolf’s mandate that non-essential businesses be closed and with guidance from the PA Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), that funds many of our programs, Small Group Employment, many Community Employment Services, Creative Expressions Adult Training Facility and Prevocational Workshop are closed for participants until the mandate is lifted. 

However, ODP has determined that home and community-based services are considered life-sustaining and are exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses.  Therefore, Via will provide limited Community Participation supports, In-Home services and Behavioral Support services.  As we learn more from ODP, coordinators will reach out to participants about services that are available.  We are reaching out to Via staff now to determine who can provide these services. 

Coordinators are working remotely and are available by email or phone to answer your questions.  Please contact your coordinator by email or phone if you need anything or email Via@ViaNet.org.
